Quick lesson no. 1

I posted a couple of camera phone photos on my Facebook page as a kind of a jokey photography lesson today. Well, a couple of people liked it, so I thought I'd post it here, too.

Improve your mobile camera images - tip no. 1:

When shooting into the sun...

...use your finger as a DIY lense hood to avoid lense flare and increase contrast.

A photographer friend mentioned that this image looks like I had used a grad tobacco filter. ;-) (I don't smoke, by the way). I could always crop the top off if I wanted.

Hmm, I might start a Quick Lesson series and add a little photography tip whenever the fancy takes me.
